Promo Codes for Dynamics 365 (CRM) -- Year End Savings and More



If you are purchasing Dynamics 365 as a new customer, or upgrading from an earlier version of Dynamics CRM, you may be eligible for some promotional pricing that will be available for a limited time. Your best source is your reseller or Microsoft partner.  If you have not been working with a Microsoft Dynamics Gold Partner such as InfoStrat in the past, you may want to enlist one just to help with this transition.

Because Dynamics 365 is more modular than Dynamics CRM, pricing is more complex.  Two editions, Business and Enterprise, are available, and a number of new products have been introduced along with bundled pricing if you need more than one. I have written about these changes in other posts which are listed below.

First, determine which type of customer you are.  Most enterprise customers purchase through a volume licensing agreement called an Enterprise Agreement.  Your reseller (a third party and not Microsoft) can help you add new users and products to your agreement.

Next, check to see whether you need a bundle such as Plan 1.  If so, you may also receive volume discounts based on the number of users.  These discounts may drive your cost lower than what you are currently paying for Dynamics CRM.

Microsoft is offering promos for new Dynamics 365 customers, including those who are purchasing the Business Edition of Dynamics 365 products.  Contact your reseller or a Microsoft partner such as InfoStrat (sales@infostrat.com) to learn more.

If you are a Dynamics CRM Online customer, your organization may fall into these categories and be eligible for transition discount pricing:

I don't normally write blogs posts on product pricing, but I am receiving questions from my clients and want to provide as much help as possible to sort through the options of Dynamics 365.

InfoStrat QuickStart for Dynamics 365


My company InfoStrat offers a Quick Start for Dynamics 365 service to help customers get up and running with Dynamics 365.  The service is completed in one week to help organizations understand the apps that make up Dynamics 365 and determine which ones make the most sense for them.

As I have written in other blog posts, there are so many new apps and features in Dynamics 365 that they warrant a new look even if you are a long term user of Dynamics CRM Online, Dynamics AX, or Dynamics NAV which predated the Dynamics 365 launch.

 Our customers have been excited to find new apps that meet some of their longstanding requirements that earlier would have required custom development.  In particular, the mobile clients for Dynamics Sales and Field Service provide a wealth of features that would be expensive and time-consuming to create from scratch.

Dynamics 365 Project Service is so new that not many customers have seen it.  Clients who choose InfoStrat's most popular Dynamics solutions for government contractors and grants management often have project management needs as well, so it is worth a look.

We have found that one of the benefits of conducting the Quick Start in only one week is that it engages users and business leaders so they make commitments to automation priorities rather than postpone their evaluation and miss out on some beneficial new features and performance.
